Cookie Party

This past Sunday I had some friends over to introduce them to the Sweet Pressed Cookie stamp sets and some of the other products from the Occasions mini catalog.  This picture above is some of the samples I showed.

More examples and supplies displayed
I had the cookie dough prepared and rolled out so we could stamp, bake and craft within the 2 hours I had set up.  The ladies had such a fun time experimenting with the different color sugar I had with all 6 cookie stamps.  We also experimented together using the cookie stamp as a chocolate mold.  Guess what?  It works!  They turn into the cutest cookies as well as chocolate.  Take a look at the snowflake chocolate that comes in the holiday cookie set.
You can see the blue sugar we tried on the cookie snowflake behind the chocolate
All I did was warm up chocolate wafers than careful spoon some chocolate onto the cookie stamp than spread it around with the back of the spoon.  When you think the stamp is covered with enough chocolate (be careful not to have too much or you will make a HUGE mess with the chocolate going over the sides) you place them in the fridge to cool.

Now here comes the tricky part; removing the chocolate without breaking it!  The nice thing about our cookie stamps is that they are made of silicone that are very flexible.  I just started bending from one side than working my way around the chocolate until it all came off!  Just take your time because the end result is worth it!  Another great reason to buy the cookie stamp sets.  This would make a great treat for anyone who loves chocolate and/or cookies.

While the cookies were baking, we made bag toppers for the cookies to go home in.  Here's what they made.

These were such a hit with the ladies.  They loved being able to take their cookies home in these adorable bags.  How cute would these be to give away for any occasion?  I just love Stampin' Up! because they have everything you need to make personalized gifts.  We sell everything to make these treat bags including the bags!
